Are you a camera buff? Or maybe just someone who wants to be able to capture moments with family and friends? I’m a bit of both. My dad was very into photography and I think I caught the bug from him. For a while, we had some of our own darkroom equipment and I even still have his 30+ year old Canon SLR camera. The thing is, these days with my blogging and social media-ing, there are always occasions where I want to whip out a camera and snap some shots but it’s just not always convenient for me to lug around a DSLR all the time. I need a point and shoot that will take me beyond the camera on my cell phone while still being compact, easy to carry and easy to use.
So recently, I was at a blogging conference and my buddy Julia from Nugglemama’s Handful was there snapping away with a Samsung Galaxy. I have to say, I was impressed by its functionality and the results she was getting! You can check out her blog post with some of the pictures she’s taken with it over here. So, when I got the chance to take part in a giveaway of one of these cameras, well I jumped at the opportunity.
The Galaxy Camera is the ultimate social camera perfect for capturing and sharing all those special holiday moments. While WiFi uploads are nothing new to point and shoot cameras, Samsung has taken it one step further by essentially taking a Samsung S3 brain, and adding a camera body with a really good zoom lens as can be seen by the tech specs below.
